Default first to update nitro with new bailout? some issues..

hey all. I'm writing in to let you know about the update for auto level, i tried it on my black nitro 700 today and ran into one issue with it, hopefully regarding vibes or something..

i installed and programmed it to the radio like normal. assigned it to my transmitter without issues. plugged in went for a flight. went high enough up and into a simple nose in inverted hover. hit the switch and the help did exactly what i should have! which was great!!


i did it a couple more times in the same flight, both of them the same position as above. one shot me sideways to the left on about a 45* angle, and the other one sent me to the right at the same angle as going left. it did not completely flip over and head into "hover" again. it simply went off angle until i caught it back.

could it be vibes? it might be. maybe i set up different? i don't think so.. maybe dirk can chime in with the issue. i just wanted to let others know about the slight issue i came across. thanks guys!

The instructions warn against this behavior on high vibration prone models like nitro's.

I've seen this same behavior on Brain1 and Brain2. Good auto level performance on a nitro is a crap shoot. You may play around with different mounting tapes and Milton mod techniques to try to get it working but I wouldn't waste the time.

I too maidened the new firmware and tested auto level on my Synergy E5s. I was quite pleased by the consistency across the board from ff flight upright and inverted.

Well, as Dmaxison wrote, nitros are a little bit difficult concering vibs.
Maybe try a different tape and see if it helps.

Please attach a flightlog of such a flight here. It could be interesting to have a look into it.
Best regards
